Secret document exposes Iran’s nuclear trigger – London Times

Confidential intelligence documents obtained by The Times show that Iran is working on testing a key final component of a nuclear bomb.The notes, from Iran’s most sensitive military nuclear project, describe a four-year plan to test a neutron initiator, the component of a nuclear bomb that triggers an explosion. Foreign intelligence agencies date them to early 2007, four years after Iran was thought to have suspended its weapons programme.An Asian intelligence source last week confirmed to The Times that his country also believed that weapons work was being carried out as recently as 2007 — specifically, work on a neutron initiator.The technical document describes the use of a neutron source, uranium deuteride, which independent experts confirm has no possible civilian or military use other than in a nuclear weapon. Uranium deuteride is the material used in Pakistan’s bomb, from where Iran obtained its blueprint.

    When will the world realize that Iran is composed, politically, of a group of hell-bent liars that want the demise of all those that oppose radical Muslim influence? I wish that the vox populi of Iran would overthrow their government before the inevitable happens. Why does the world weep for these authoritarian military run dictatorships? Why can't the world see the wood for all of the trees? Let Democracy rule and let the people speak before the common Iranian is reduced to ash because of it's government! The entire Middle East is supported by leftist liberals who don't understand that religion proliferates beyond common sense. The rest of the world claims to be progressive, but we continue to support the most regressive and oppressive governments in recent history. The entire middle east is backwards. Mohamou”who cares how to spell it”ejad is a radical, a liar, and he will annihilate Israel, and any other Western supporters if he gets the chance. Piss on Iran's government. I hope they get their just desserts like Saddam. Hang them all! This includes their precious Sheik or Ayatollah, or whoever else claims supreme reign over a group of oppressed people.

    Why is there no responsibility for the false NIE?

    Someone manipulated information and used it as political propaganda to impact an election and national security decisions. They had plenty of information that iran had not halted nuclear bomb research and production. What is the penalty for providing false intelligence reporting to the US Government?
